“Starting from a rough draft, I would love to get this ironed out and posted in a more visible space,” says Conti in the thread’s introduction. “First off though, i want to make sure that it has enough information to help people navigate through their issues.”

“I’ll continue to post on other threads and add guidance to this top post as needed, or feel free to post additional advice you have below,” Conti adds. “File sharing shouldn’t require anything overly complicated on your windows/osx/linux machine, so if you have only had success using something tricky, i’d love to have a chance to troubleshoot with you a bit.”

The thread’s overview is organized in three sections:

  • Scanning the local network
  • Troubleshooting
